Q: Will the latest version (Version 184.108.40.206) work with 1.16.5/Snapshots or will I/we have to wait for an update ??
EDIT: NVM Thought I'd try it out (forge version).. seems to work but you get a popup message of
'Version Mismatch You have installed a version of the mod on a version of minecraft it was not intended for.
In the best case data will be saved inaccurately
in the worst case expect crashes'
No, the latest version only supports 1.16.4. 1.16.5 shares the same protocol version, so you should be able to connect to 1.16.5 servers using 1.16.4 (this is why I haven't gotten around to updating to 1.16.5 yet). Snapshots are a different story, and there is basically no chance that the mod will work with them until I update it when 1.17 proper releases (which will require a bit of effort due to the various world format changes that are happening in 1.17).
